Wow Sharat, it does look nice. Hope it performs as well too. ALl the best for Munnar. Sudden last moment work pressures have made me skip the events!

Considering how your tyres are brand new, I think it has more to do with the manufacturing consistency of the alloy rim itself. I have seen brand new wheels, straight out of factory packaging, that shows a jump or a wobble on the balancing machine. Without any tyres mounted.

But those rims are quite light at 5 kgs!

Dear Sharath - I have been waiting patiently for many months for your comment that the cooling issue is now sorted out. I am happy to read it. So - for the benefit of all, here is what my teachers taught me and which is etched in my mind for life - THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO DO A JOB AND THAT IS THE CORRECT WAY.

It is proved now.

By the way, I cannot open the photographs of the alloy wheels on your car (some note about "nonsecure items" appears). Can you please do something about it?

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Recently sighted a Jeep around Chandigarh, 'apparently' done up with alloys low slung fat look. Looked like a Dabwali product to me.

Behram, problem must be with your office firewall blocking photographs. See this thread from your home PC.
